Can't really see anything in the second movie, it's all so dark... The first one looks interesting, but I am puzzled why you're using the RCS to fight against the elevators? I presume the shell itself is a proper lifting body; are the rear control surfaces just not receiving enough airflow to allow them to influence vehicle direction?

You're right, that's why the mod is not online yet, it's not that easy to sculpt a lifting body, it'll be fun to get the right balance.

I am looking forward to this mod being released. (I really like lifting bodies)

Final tests with Mechjeb without RCS support up to 200 KM over notch. Internal fuel without cheat. It still follows the landing. Start Horizontal from the runway

I think it looks okay... Control surfaces appeared to follow the actual way you were turning, and it seems like there's better clearance around them for easier airflow. It would really help if you filmed these videos during the daytime though.

These parts are looking awesome. Do you have any idea of when they will be ready?
